Patagonia Guidewater Wader

April 19, 2011

Patagonia built the Guidewater Wader to be the toughest, most puncture-resistant waterproof/breathable wader on the planet. They also had to be extremely lightweight while offering a groundbreaking level of comfort and convenience. In other words, the ultimate wader. They started by strategically placing varying weights of our proprietary waterproof/breathable polyester microfiber fabric package with H2No Hydrostorm barrier according to specific breathability or toughness needs. The result? Max durability and flexibility without resorting to excessive heavy, sweat-trapping multiple layers. Our revolutionary merino wool grid-lined neoprene booties wick perspiration and create guilt-inducing levels of foot comfort. The most advanced version of our innovative internal suspension system allows easy conversion to waist height and – this is critical – quick relief without having to remove your jacket or fight sticky zippers. More features: sculpted upper for reduced drag in heavy currents, anatomically designed left and right legs and booties, built in fabric gravel guards with abrasion-resistant scuff zones and high-filtration mesh drain strip. Field repair kit included.
